Alpaca Yarn

Alpaca is one of the world’s most luxurious fibres. Andes Alpacas harvest their own herds fibre once a year at shearing to process into yarn. 


The fibre from the herd is as low as 15 micron which is ultra fine. In its natural un-dyed state it comes with significant environmental & ethical properties making it very attractive to the “green” maker & market.


Alpaca is not prickly with no lanolin which makes it hypoallergenic. Alpaca fibre has water repellent & fire resistant properties. 


It also absorbs little humidity & is thermally insulating.


Alpaca boasts the biggest range of natural colours out of all natural fibre’s. 


Alpaca given the correct care won’t shrink or pill, is virtually indestructible. 

Alpaca Cushions

Our Alpaca Cushions are filled with 100% Andes alpaca fibre from our herd in Devon. 


All cushions are lovingly handmade. They are a natural product so the colour shades and markings will be unique and varied. All alpaca is un-dyed in it’s natural colour, skirted, graded & carded by hand in an ethical environmentally sustainable manner.

Handmade ‘Alpaca Felted Insoles’ - For Happy Feet

Andes Alpacas hand crafted ‘100% Alpaca Felted Insoles’ are lovingly made using a 5 layer wet felting process on the farm in North Devon, utilising home grown fibre from our own bred herd of alpacas in an ethically sustainable way. 

  • 100% natural un-dyed alpaca
  • Year round insulation, keep feet cool in hot conditions & warm in cold conditions
  • Excellent for Raynaud's & Neuropathy sufferers - can be worn over orthotics
  • No glue, acrylic, sheep’s wool, rubber or dye is used in this hypo allergenic product.
  • Odour, damp & bacteria free
  • Moisture wicking properties
  • Ethically sustainably

These cosy felted insoles will keep your feet warm in boots, wellies, shoes, clogs, slippers & crocs. The felted insoles are moisture-wicking thermal insulators designed to keep feet cozy for super comfort. With alpaca fibre insoles you’ll end odour, damp & bacteria & have sweet feet. 


Moisture wicking & breathable, never itchy or scratchy, alpaca has the lowest moisture retention of any natural fibre’s. Wicking the chilling damp away from feet while your bodies temperature causes it to vaporise. Sheep wool insoles absorb up to 60% of its weight in water which makes alpaca qualities superior. 


Existing wearers report their toes are comfortably warm, but never ‘hot’ & a decrease in foot fungus, odour & dry cracking feet. Raynaud's & neuropathy sufferers find these aid them in keeping warm too.


Instructions:


Cut to fit - simply take out the insole in your boot or shoe, place over insole & trace around it, cut the felt with scissors. Hand wash in cool water, dry flat. due to being a natural product the colours may vary.
